Best Tanglewood (pre-concert) Meal?

Since we live in the area we go when it is less crazy. I would be too anxious re: timing.

Yes, but no reservations so won't work pre Tanglewood unless one is prepared to go very early and wait on line

Native Foods Oatmeal Creme Pie recipe

I have no idea where that restaurant is or what their cookies are like but this recipe is fabulous and adaptable to other additions.
Since we dislike canola oil we sub coconut oil. We also use white whole wheat instead of AP flour and ise coco palm sugar and leave out the agave

My Favorite Corn Muffin Recipe

These are the ones I make but I increase the cornmeal by half and decrease the flour for a Better taste and more texture. and also I think this is twice as much sugar as I like.
Last time I made them I used coconut oil, which I thought was an improvement.

Come to the Berkshires like a good New Yorker and stock up;)
My guess is that they don't have enough production yet; they usually sell out at the farmers market.
The fermented veg are amazing by the way .

I would love to meet her. We cook a lot of her food.
Here is the website for the tempeh. They also make the best naturally fermented krauts I have ever tasted, including a crimson one with a nice little kick.

Which gluten free thickener for apricot crisp?

Have you considered posting on special diets at vegan boards?

I would use a bit of coconut flour.

Musings on the relatively low activity on Southern New England Board

You have apparently not been to western Ma where there are many great restaurants and several Asian markets.

The geographical area of the board is too wide, I have no interest in most of the area it covers.

I marinate it after steaming it a bit, and for the marinade I add a little tamari. It was quite good. We are getting a delicious locally made tempeh which is quite thick and so I cut it through the middle first. I served the rest of the sauce on the side after grilling. I think it was originally a PPK recipe.
We are omnis but I often bring it to potlucks because here in Western MA many people are v/v.
I do have to say we get some glorious salads at those:)

Storing Chopped Tomatoes Overnight

That is not my experience. Perhaps it depends on the temp of the kitchen and the variety of the tomato?

This seems shortsighted as many people only use their phones nowadays (even me and I am definitely a codger)

It is a bit cool here today so I will turn on the oven to make a beet green gratin. It calls for brown rice but I think wheat berries might be nice.
Blueberries for afters.

A friend brought a " salad" , just some bagged greens and grape tomatoes ( by the way she is pescatarian but mostly vegetarian, we are omnis, how does she survive on such salads?) . She had not made dressing and said I knew you would have a bottle of dressing. I didn't but made a simple mustard vinaigrette . She acted like I had made a 7 course tasting menu.

With the chimichura tempeh we had made it was ok

Ceraldi for a treat for sure. Also Mac's shack for a fun tropical vibe, PB Boulangerie for high quality baked goods( the almond croissants are to die for).
We like Moby Dick's for a casual lobster in the riugh dinner( they make a darned good wedge salad too).

If you are measuring you are probably using too much flour, especially if you are dipping the measuring cup into the flour.
